Tim McCurdy in Hume Veterans Cycling Murray Marathon Tim McCurdy, the Nationals candidate for Murray Valley, has thrown his support behind the Red Cross Mighty Murray Marathon. Mr McCurdy has decided to join the Nationals team and paddle from Yarrawonga to Swan Hill in the 2010 event. Nationals deputy leader Peter Walsh was in town recently to show Tim the  finer points of paddling. “Although Tim has not competed before it is terrific that he is prepared to support this event,” Mr Walsh said.“Tim needs to spend more time on top of the water rather than in the water though.” Mr McCurdy said the race will test endurance and that heat stress levels can be difficult if you don’t stay hydrated. “I have seen the boats come through every year and it has been on my todo list so at last I will get the opportunity” he said.   Mr McCurdy encouraged others to support the Red Cross and support our local communities by participating or even working as support crew for others.   The Murray Marathon will begin at Yarrawonga on De- Nationals candidate for Murray Valley Tim McCurdy and Nationals deputy leader Peter Walsh get in some paddling training. cember 27 .

Not often do ‘block’ receive the merit they deserve by way of a win but this week’s race went their way.

Maybe it was the quality of the bunch or it could have been the fact they were racing for the Hume’s annual “George Goodwin Trophy Handicap”. The race was initially set up by the Goodwin family eleven years ago with the first running over a very difficult course at Mansfield and was moved to Dookie for the 2002 running where it’s remained since. The legendry George Goodwin passed away a couple of months ago aged 86. Last year’s winner Mick Cathie was paired with Kay Rennick and given 21 minutes. They were set the task of chasing visiting rider Woodley off 26 min and Harrison off 40 minsutes. The pair caught the two in front of them and led the race at the Tocumwal Rd turn by over 2 minutes but still had 19ks to go. At the same marker scratch riders, Cobbledick, Frawley and visiting rider Laffy had lost time to ‘block’ by 30 seconds.

The leaders turned at Yabba to head home with a slender lead which was swallowed up with 9kms to go by the 14 minute group. At the same point the 8.30 group were caught by ‘block’ and a couple of kilometres down the road hit the front. With only the ‘S’ bend and the ‘hill’ to encounter it is always the ‘very fit’ that dictate the race in its final kilometres and this year’s race was no different. Half way up the kilometre climb Lyster was first to make a move but was soon covered and six riders went clear of the pack. The downhill finish suits the powerful sprinters and visiting rider Sylvester showed his sprinting prowess in the final metres. Sylvester came off Lyster’s wheel in the final metres to snatch victory with Whitby filling the dais. Six seconds covered the first six placings with Carmelotti home for fourth, Crossthwaite fifth and Holgate rounding out the aggregate points. Despite being down at the last turn, scratch turned a 4 minute deficit into a positive by picking up over 3 minutes in the

last 19 kms to be a little over a minute down on the large leading group at the finish line. In a shoot out for fastest time Geoff Cobbledick got his nose in front of Laffy in the final metres to take the honours with Frawley a few metres back. Cobbledick’s average for the 57 km course 39.19 kph compared with Sylvester’s winning time, a 38.70 kph average.

Results: 1-Graham Sylvester (gv) (3.30) – 1.28.22, 2-Laurie Lyster (3.30), 3-Russell Whitby (3.30), 4-Mick Carmelotti (8.30), 5-Gifford Crosthwaite (3.30), 6-John Holgate (8.30), 7-Michael Washington (8.30), 8-Peter Brown (14), 9-John Myles (14), 10-Chris Wilkins (14).
